The Force Awakens in the Forest of Dean

Yes, its true, the Forest of Dean really is out of this world!

So, many of you will have seen and enjoyed the new Star Wars film, but did you know that one of the locations was actually filmed right here in the FoD? The action took place at the fabulous Puzzlewood; a 14 acre ancient woodland that was once a Roman iron mine. It’s also reputed to have been visited by JRR Tolkien and to have inspired the fabled forests of Middle Earth. Numerous other films and TV shows have used this location, including Merlin, Doctor Who and Atlantis to mention just a few. This magical place is a favorite of ours and only a few miles from Belvedere! Why not book a stay with us and discover its beauty and mystery for yourself.
